If you’re an essential worker

Starting May 13, symptomatic AND asymptomatic health care workers, first responders, social service workers and other essential workers who have been unable to get tested through their health care providers or employers can make an appointment for a free test. If you don’t have insurance, your tests will be paid for by the state.

Tests are by appointment only for locations in Buena Park, Orange, Santa Ana and San Juan Capistrano.

If you don’t have symptoms

Because of continued challenges of obtaining testing supplies and Personal Protective Equipment for health care providers conducting tests, testing in Orange County is only being offered to high-priority groups, including essential workers and those exhibiting symptoms. These high-priority groups are defined by the California Department of Public Health and Orange County Public Health.
